Anonymous asked: How long should I wait before swimming in the ocean after a new piercing?
You’ll want to wait at least one month before swimming in any water with a new piercing.
I seem to have loads of clients assuming swimming in the ocean with a new piercing is fine, because its the sea and I suggest sea salt solution for aftercare. Its really not the same thing, whales are having sex in there. Going in the ocean does not mean you’re in one giant soak cup, its means you’re soaking your new piercing in dead fish and other people’s urine. Even if you wash your new piercing immediately afterward all the bacteria, chemicals, and who knows what else has already gotten in your piercing.
